Let me start this review staking my claim on Jax. He's been mine since Finding Flynn, and I've been waiting for his book since forever. Alexandria has even said that he's mine all mine, so neener neener. Just kidding....sort of.
But for real, Fighting for Jax was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be. I wasn't a huge fan of Erin Morris, who we've met a few times in the previous books in the series. She was so not the girl for my guy. But in this story, we get to learn her back story and we find out why she is who she is. What made such an unlikeable character (in my opinion) and why she seemed to close herself off from Jax and others. I can honestly say, Alexandria definitely made me not hate her so much, but it still killed me to watch how her presence affected Jax. But then again, he was pretty much the biggest douche to her, and that made me not like him at times.
Jackson 'Jax' Hartley is, to me, the best bad boy rocker there is. He's got that attitude that says he doesn't care, but I always knew deep down that he did. His lack of control throughout this entire story is proof of that. Even though he treats some people like crap and he lets his demons consume him, I KNEW he could overcome all of that. He went through a lot in his story, and I am so impressed with Alexandria's ability to give it to us in the most perfect way.
Fighting for Jax is told in dual POV, my absolute favorite kind, and it was the only way this story could have been told. Hearing Erin's side of everything and then Jax's side makes the story complete. What she thought or what he thought, we knew the truth behind it all. And we're able to watch them both learn and grow. We're able to see that moment when everything changes for each of them. I love that.
I'm not all that into rocker series, but the Marlowe boys are my absolute favorite. I'm sad to see this main series end, but I've heard this might not be the last time we hear from them. I hope that's true!
